Click on the heart above to join us at Marsha's Musings in "Pursuing Love" over the next several weeks.
This week's topic is "Love Is Patient." Well isn't that such good timing! I've mentioned before that we do family Bible lessons together on Wednesday nights. Right now we are going through the Fruit of the Spirit. Last week was on patience. Then Friday night I realized how impatient I can be! I ran into Walgreens to pick up some pictures. The store was pretty empty and I grabbed the couple other items on sale and went to the photo counter. No one was there and I didn't see any employees around either. Then a girl walks in and asks if I needed help. I said yes and she hollered down an aisle at some lady who was pulling old price tags off of a shelf. That lady never did come and the other girl came back later and got the pictures for me. I probably wasn't there five minutes. It felt forever to me because I didn't want to stand and wait when there wasn't even a line and all I needed was my pictures grabbed off the shelf! It annoyed me as I went back to the car. Later I realized how silly it was for me to be impatient to wait on such a silly thing.
God used this to remind me that I need to be patient for His timing. I think He uses little things like this to see how we'll respond as we need more patience to wait longer or for bigger things. As I mentioned yesterday waiting is hard. I know I have got to just trust Him though as I wait.
